LETTERS TO THE PRESS

From Christian Science Committees on Publication

Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, author of the best seller Confessions of a Medical Heretic writes (p xiii): "Modern Medicine can't survive without our faith, because Modern Medicine is neither an art nor a science. It's a religion." Perhaps not too surprisingly, anything that diverges from this popular "religion" may seem strange or alien. This in turn can lead to superstitious characterization.

The two items below sought to cut through superstition and remind people that their Christian Science neighbors are normal, deeply caring members of the community. Obviously, Mrs. Eddy's guidance to Christian Scientists themselves is still needed and still timely (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 444): "Students are advised by the author to be charitable and kind, not only towards differing forms of religion and medicine, but to those who hold these differing opinions."
